Made by former Cloudy Bay winemaker Eveline Fraser, this aptly named “little beauty” is good enough to rival the wines of her previous employer, but is available for a fraction of the price. Only the best grapes from the best parcels are selected for this range. The wine is then fermented with 100% wild yeast and is aged in French oak to add weight and depth.
Hugely aromatic with herbal notes, tropical fruits and sandalwood aromas. This wine has spent some times on its lees and in old french barrel.
“Sophisticated, elegant bouquet with some toasty bottle development. Wonderful acidity follows through to the finish, adding texture and balance. Drink 2017-2022.” – 90/94pts, Decanter Magazine, August 2017
New Zealander still white wine from Marlborough New Zealand, made with Sauvignon Blanc
This little privately owned estate lies in Marlborough’s Southern Valleys where the wines differ slightly from the mainstream. The property is spread over five plots, each with its own soil profile and micro climate, which allows wine maker Eveline Fraser (ex Cloudy Bay) the chance to make unusually complex, multi dimensional wines. The wine making is modern, but there is more than a nod towards tradition; in ‘Little Beauty’ the best of new and the best of the old unite together seamlessly. View our selection.
